Agnes Varda, Feminism, and The New Wave

Agnes Varda, Feminism, and the New Wave provides the first comprehensive historical study of one of the most celebrated female filmmakers of the twentieth century, Agnes Varda. It uses her complex career as a lens to create an innovative, interdisciplinary history of the New Wave film movement, appealing to audiences across the fields of film, art history, gender studies, and cultural studies. This book is particularly timely given the recent release of Varda's collected films on DVD. This book makes available previously unpublished material, including new translations, documentation of films, and original interviews with filmmakers, critics, and theorists who shaped the trajectory of contemporary cinematic practice. Two chapters and a prospectus are currently under review for a book contract. With a twelve-month NEH fellowship for 2010-11, I will complete a draft of the entire manuscript. The full manuscript will be submitted to the publisher during the 2011-12 academic year.
